Google Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL

At Google I/O this year, the tech giant announced a pair of new phones: the Pixel 3A and Pixel 3A XL. Though they share the names as the company's current flagships, the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, the Pixel 3A and 3A XL are cheaper, with fewer top hardware features.

What it does have is a headphone jack and you can get it from more carriers. In the US, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular will sell the phones. The phone works on AT&T's network too if you buy it unlocked, but you can't get it directly from the network.

Google Pixel 3A XL and Pixel 3A

Though the Pixel 3A and 3A XL don't have as much high-end hardware as the original Pixel 3, Google still managed to make a solid, budget-minded phone. Compared with the more affordable flagship options of competitors like the iPhone XR and the Galaxy S10E, the Pixel 3A doesn't have features like water resistance or wireless charging. But if you want the latest software from Google and you want to take fantastic photos -- all at a few hundreds of dollars less than the other phones -- the Pixel 3A is worth considering.
